Hi everyone. I’m a rather new knitter, and until now I’ve always been able to do some experimenting and get my questions answered out of books… but this time I think a fingerless glove pattern has beaten me!
Below are the instructions that I’m having a hard time understanding:
Round 1: P1, M1L, M1R, P1. These 4 stitches start the gusset. Place marker, work remaining stitches in pattern as established.
Round 2: P1, K2, P1, slip marker, work remaining stitches in pattern as established.
Continue in this manner, increasing 2 stitches on both sides of the gusset every other round, incorporating the increased stitches into the pattern, until you have 26 stitches.
I got through Rounds 1 and 2 ok. But I’ve never seen gusset instructions with just one marker, and I’m not sure how to “increase 2 stitches on both sides of the gusset.” When I get to round 3, do I literally just repeat round 1? That doesn’t seem right. I feel like there are instructions missing here.
Would anyone be able to write out what Round 3 would look like, given the “increase 2 stitches” sentence that is confusing me?
Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!
